    I don't use leg straps, even if the blanket comes with them. I put a tail strap on the back rings instead. You can buy Rambo tail straps (plastic snaps, elastic strap covered with a flexible...

    I just bought a Canon 60D before Christmas to replace my 40D that died.

    If you buy a body with a kit lens, plan on buying another higher quality lens. I have 4 lenses, 2 cheap zoom lenses and 2...

    I had shied away from custom mats because of how expensive the first site I found was. But you guys encouraged me to keep looking, and I found AmericanFrame.com to be pretty reasonably priced. My...

    When a horse is that badly injured, cutting the horse's throat so it bleeds out is preferable to waiting for a vet.

    The only reason I get Practical Horseman is for the Jumping Clinic. I'm debating whether it's really worth it or not.

    Inexpensive Photo Frames & Mats?

    I took a photo of my horse that I really want to get a (fairly large) print of and frame it.

    The photo is large enough to get a print up to 20x30 (which is bigger than I want).

    The problem is...

    How much do the horses get?

    At my barn, there are horses who eat their hay within an hour or two, so yeah, they don't have hay all night. But they get sufficient hay (by weight) to maintain a...

    I had Geico before and it was fine, but they raised my rates for no reason, so I switched to Progressive, which has also been fine.

    I hate Kanye West. The media needs to just ignore him. It'll take a very long time, but if we consistently fail to reward his bad behavior, eventually he'll stop (or at least not do it as often).

    The end.

    Yup, LLD. It's not uncommon.. one foot will be upright and one will be low. If you stand the horse up square and stand behind it, you'll see the difference in the shoulders.

    Exactly. I have no problem with the woman in the video saying that riding isn't vegan. What I do object to is the assertion that riding is cruel.

    If bits are so cruel, why does my horse grab the bit as soon as I hold the bridle up? If he had hands, he'd put his bridle on himself.
